The Future of THE ONCE AND FUTURE QUEEN

If you’ve enjoyed issues 1 and 2 of The Once and Future Queen and are eagerly awaiting issue 3 (not to mention 4 and 5), we have some news you’ll want to read (from co-writer/co-creator Adam P. Knave’s site)…

Hey! I heard you have some really important news about The Once and Future Queen? We do. We do.

What has happened? Issues #3–#5 of The Once and Future Queen have been cancelled, in print and digital. But there will still be a trade collection of the full series released in November. You can order it by clicking here, right now, in fact.

Why did this happen? The comic industry is a fickle thing. The Once and Future Queen was well received by press and its readers, and while it was growing in market awareness, print efforts have been shifted to the book market so we can grow and reach our target audience. 

So you guys failed then? The hell you say! We crafted a story that we are deeply proud of, that everyone involved is deeply proud of, and that will see the light of day come November.

Anything else we should know? Eat your veggies. No, seriously. This happened fast, and we’re letting you know as soon as we could. Thank you to everyone who picked up issues #1 and #2 and enjoyed them. We won’t let you down. This story has been an amazingly good time to create, and we want you to have the same good time reading it. Also, you know, some of the stuff you’ll see in the trade… the Gwen/Rani/Lance stuff people think they know where that’s going and y’all are wrong so far, which is delightful. Bigger plot things going on that…  It’s exciting, it’s fun, and we stand behind it every step of the way. So yeah, thank you guys!  And don’t forget to order The Once and Future Queen trade paperback at Darkhorse.com, Amazon.com, or Barnes and Noble!

Love and Tattoo swords,
